Subject: Slackers in Tempay
first time on internet archive...so pleased to find the slackers on here...i was at this show!!! i love how the slackers were just hangin out at the bar before and after the show...i thought it was funny they kept calling pronouncing the city of tempe wrong (it's tem-pee not tem-pay) something i mispronounced also when i first moved there...it is a great recording, but missed some of the great horn playing by dave...anyways still worth the download...too bad the toots performance isn't on here also

What a great, great show. It's a lifeline. So much fun. Quality here is excellent, much better than 2006-01-07 (that one got awful sound don't even think of downloading it.) Incomparable. Though the horns coulda been captured a bit better here. My guess is that it was a mic thing. But that's minor, this is a little gem of a show.
Oh man, I wish there was more ska on the Archive!! Right now, there's nothing cool aside from Ruder Than You - as far as I know.

Subject: Nice opening set
Another top notch set from the Slackers on the LMA. Sound quality is quite crisp as its from a soundboard, and the mix is quite nice, even if the keys are a bit high. That's just personal preference however, and alternatively its nice to hear Vic's keyboard playing clearly. Sounds like the whole band was present, a luxury that I haven't been able to enjoy as Q Maxx is usually absent from Canadian shows. I saw them once without Q or Glen Pine. Ugh. Also of note; since its from a soundboard, the audience is barely audible, which makes 'In Walked Capo' sound quite weak in the call and response choruses. This may have been due to their opening slot too, though I would think most ska and roots fans would have heard of The Slackers before.

This show is after they had released their International War Criminal EP, and their split album with the punk act, Pulley. As such is the case, they perform 'I Shall Be Released', their Bob Dylan cover, and 'Cupid', an old track originally by soulster Sam Cooke. 'Crisp Like Crackers' is from their Slackers in Dub record, and is an interesting instro with some hot solos.

Of the 3 releases I've heard on LMA, the 2002 show from Toronto is the best, but this one is a close second. The energy level just isn't as high as that night at Lee's Palace. Nevertheless, download it! Its free!

This is a fantastic sounding soundboard recording! High energy - do not hesitate to download! Thank you so much to whomever is responsible for this and hopefully we'll see more Slackers shows up on the Archive real soon!!
